The sample consisted of 101 high school students. The dependent variable was the career maturity scores. Three independent variables investigated were: 1) gender, 2) race, and 3) high school classification. Six null hypotheses were tested in the study. Seventeen comparisons were made and four were found to be significant at the .05 level. Two null hypotheses for main effect were rejected. The results of this study appeared to support the following generalizations: 1) that gender and high school classification made no difference in mean career maturity scores, 2) that race made a difference in mean career maturity scores, 3) that there was a difference between the calculated mean score for the total sample and the expected mean score for the instrument, 4) that the Anglo male adolescent had a greater inventoried mean career maturity score than the Hispanic male, and 5) that the mean career maturity level for male adolescents was greater than the female level.
